No se cuantos Curriculos hemos mandado, especialmente yo, como yo era la que se supone tenía que conseguir un trabajo primero para sacarnos adelante, porque el aleman de Jose Carlos no es demasiado bueno todavia.
El primer mes fue muy duro. No hemos oido nada, no nos salió nada, no teníamos seguro, vivíamos practicamente de mis padres y no queríamos molestar, etc.
Casi queríamos tirar la toalla, pero toda la familia dijo que espararamos por lo menos hasta Navidad, así que decidimos hacer eso. Y entonces en Noviembre por fin por lo menos nos llamaron algunas compañias para ir para una entrevista, que ya era algo. Y vendimos el piso de Elche a uno de nuestros mejores amigos, que era entonces una deuda menos. Así que JoseCarlos se fue a España por una semana a finalizar eso y a traer nuestras cosas en un camion, con 2 grandes amigos, Sami y Hector, quienes se vinieron para acompañarle y a traer el camion de vuelta a España. GRACIAS SAMI Y HECTOR por vuestro gran sacrificio de un viaje muuuy largo, con todo lo que incluyó!!!
Ahora, la gran noticia teníamos esta semana: el primero de Diciembre! JoseCarlos y yo hechamos Curriculum en una empresa de aluminio que necesitaban a alguien con lengua materna español! (lo que oimos de una amiga nueva Gina, GRACIAS GINA!!) Ellos nos dijeron que nos llamarían la semana siguiente, pero al día siguiente ya llamaron a Jose Carlos para ir unos dias despues, el uno de diciembre! Estaban encantados con el! Necesitan a alguien para vender por teléfono a España, Latin America, Inglaterra, Irlanda, lo cual es perfecto para el!!
Y empezará el 4 de enero!!
Well, sorry if I didn´t put anything in here yet. Most of you are on Facebook as well, so I hope you could follow us along anyway. I didn´t stop or relax for the first 6 weeks, so that´s why. Just now I´m catching up with things.
I don´t know how many CV´s we sent, especially me. Because it was me at first who was supposed to get a full-time job for the beginning since Jose´s german is not so good yet.
The first month was very hard, because we didn´t hear anything, nothing turned out, we were without insurance, we were living off my parents basically and didn´t want to bother, etc.
We were about to give up, but all the family said, that we had to wait at least til Christmas, so we decided we would do that. And then in November finally we got some calls at least for interviews, which was at least something. And we sold our town-apartment to one of our best friends, so we had one debt less. Jose went to Spain for a week to finalize that and brought all our stuff in a van to Austria, with 2 friends who drove with him to accompany him and to drive back the van. A whole adventure on its own! Thanks Hector and Sami for that loooong trip with all that that included!!
Now the biggest news we had this week, on the 1st of December: Jose and I dropped our CV´s at a company who were looking for someone with Spanish mother language! (which we heard from a new friend Gina, THANKS GINA!) They told us that the next week they would call us to let us know.... the next DAY they phoned Jose and told him to come in for an interviews a few days later, which was the 1st of December! Well, they were thrilled with him! They need somebody to sell over the phone to Spain, Latin America, England, Ireland, which he is perfect for! And he´s gonna start on January 4th!!!

This summer we enjoyed with my niece Vanessa and her friend Kati who came from Austria for 2 weeks. We went a lot of places and got tanned (except Vanessa who just got red) :))

Well, since I left my blog a bit abandoned, now I have to put you all the news of the last months and Lorenas birthday is definitely one of them. It was already a month and a half ago, but still is important. We had two parts, my sister came a week earlier and we opened alot of presents there, but the party we did with a few friends of hers from here in another part. It was also better wheather, so they even were able to play in the water a bit.
Well, this is a selection of the beautiful pastures, and little lakes of Austria, at least from the area we are at now. It's not as nice as when you walk through all this, but you can at least have a taste of it. I enjoy it very much, I hope you can too!

A Jose Carlos le ofrecieron un trabajo de vender Alarmas en America ya hace un ano, pero entonces no se pudieron hacer los papeles, pero esta vez si que ha funcionado. Esta en Grand Forks, North Dakota y va estar de 3 a 6 meses, depende como va el trabajo. Supuestamente es un buen trabajo, normalmente para estudiantes, de verano y se gana buen dinero. Estamos orando para es asi para nosotros tambien y a Jose Carlos le funciona la lengua vendedora tan bien como en Espana. Y yo decidi quedarme porque no sabiamos como ibamos a estar y si iba bien. Asi que cogi la oportunidad de venir a Austria por 3 meses a estar con mi familia, ya que mi familia va tambien por un tiempo dificil. Mi padre ha tenido un infarto cerebral hace 5 semanas y la recuperacion de esta enfermedad es lenta. Pero va mejorando. Asi que estoy feliz de poder apoyar a mis padres y mis hermanas con lo que puedo. Pero echamos en falta a Jose Carlos, a Papa, mucho. Se fue hace una semana solamente, pero ya parece mas largo. Te queremos Papa!
Jose Carlos was offered a job to sell alarmsystems in America, already a year ago, but it didn't work then with the papers, but this year it worked. He is in Grand Forks, North Dakota and he's going to be there for 3 to 6 months, depending on how the job goes. Supposedly it is a good job, normally for students, for summer and good money is earned. We're praying that it is going good for Jose Carlos too and his selling tongue works as good in America as it is in Spain. Well, I decided to stay, because we didn't know how things would work out and how the job would work. So, I took the opportunity to come to Austria for 3 months and be with my family, as we are going through a difficult time too. My father had a stroke 5 weeks ago and the recovery from that is slow. But it is going upward. So I'm happy to be able to support my parents and sisters in as much I can. But we do miss Jose Carlos, Daddy, very much. He is only gone for a week, but it already seems longer. We love you Daddy!!

Well, I lost the baby today. It wasn´t for anything I did or didn´t do, it just didn´t get all the cromosomes or hormones together as it was needed and it went. We are grateful it happened now, and not furtheron, when it hurts more (emotionally). We are sad of course, but well. So, we already have an angel watching and waiting in heaven!

Realmente estabamos dudando, si era el momento de tener otro. Pero yo tengo el problema de los quistes, que se puedes reproducirse en cualquier momento, hemos decidido poner la familia delante de los problemas del mundo y ir a buscar el numero 3. Y aqui viene!
For us it is still a miracle! At first we couldn´t have any and now with one or two tries and the next is on its way - well, it´s hard to believe! GOD IS GREAT!
Really we were doubting if it is the right moment to have another one. But I have this problem with the cysts that can come again anytime, so we decided to put family first and go for number 3. And here it comes!!

What a day! We talked about going to the snow with Elen and her family (one of José´s sisters) to somewhere around Granada. Well, before leaving in the Gas-station, we couldn´t open the lid of the tank in the car. So we couldn´t go. But we had everything packed for a picnic, so we called our friends MariPaz and Dani from Cartagena and we self-invited us to their day on the beach! From the snow to the beach! I prefer the heat to the cold, so fine with me! Anyway, we had a great day with all our white feet in the sand and the kids enjoying playing with the sand getting dirty all over and we even got a sun-burn all of us at least on the face and some feet too!
Well, we had the opportunity to go to the temple thanks to my mom. Every time she comes, we go to the templo because she does us the favor of looking after the kiddies. Thanks Mom, I love you, thank you for all your support and everything you do! This time, we went all of us, so the girls can see the temple as well. Well, they loved it! Lorena was all day (and night, when she woke up) talking about Moroni and his trumpet! She plays sometimes with fictious monsters and then she´s afraid of them. So we told her that Moroni with his trumpet scares them all away! So, she loves him! :) Anyway, it was a real good, wonderful, relaxing time as a family and nobody else. Although it was sad to see the temple this empty. It was our stake-temple week but almost nobody was there. They loose out! To us it gave us a lot of peace anyway in this crisis, it seems we´re going from bad to worse. But something will come up, the Lord will provide a way!

Well, this came a bit late, but not because of me. I got the pictures really late. We forgot our camera that day. They did a Valentines dinner at church and we were able to go without kids, thanks to Saray, one of the Young Women (although all of them asked if they could do it, I was amazed!). It was wonderful! We laughed alot and we enjoyed being just adults this time. The young single men did the waitering and the single women the cooking. And afterwards there were some performances with Karaoke we really enjoyed and laughed with (sorry, not in a bad sense!). Tere Juarez did one of them and we were all amazed at her voice, she´s really good and nobody knew! I LOVE YOU MY LOVE!
This year I enjoyed my birthday very much. We had the traditional breakfast with the family with hot chocolate and "churros" (something typical spanish, fried dough with sugar, kind of), what we always do, but as well I could enjoy a bit more, because my birthday was Saturday and sales. José stayed with the girls for a few hours and my mom and I went shopping. We didn´t buy alot, just a few things, but it felt really good. And afterwards we went to Santa Pola to the beach, because it was really nice and sunny (a present from my Heavenly Father) and we ate in front of the beach and had a walk by the beach. It was a beautiful day and really satisfying! Thanks to my dear hubby, he is soo good to me and sometimes I don´t thank him enough! He treats me really good! I love you my love, more than my life!!

Well, this year we could finally enjoy carneval a bit. In Austria it is very much celebrated, everybody gets dressed up and I´ve missed that very much, because here almost nobody does. So this year, Lorena is in Kindergarden and I´ve enjoyed dressing her up a few days and on Saturday we had a dressing-up-party at church for the first time in the 10 years I´m here! I love dressing up! All our family we went as a gipsy-family, with Grandma included as my mom is just here this month. It was really fun. It wasn´t really long, but very funny, we enjoyed it very much!

Bueno, en su cumple Nerea estaba halucinando con tantas caras alrededor cantanto a ella y no ha hecho otra cosa que mirar. ¡Una preciosidad!
Well, well, how time passes by so fast! Our little baby is already a year and she´s so much ahead of her age. She has lots of fun playing with her sister and not to mention when all the cousins come, she´s behind them all. The sad thing is, when her sister is in the Kindergarden in the mornings she gets bored and wants to be with Mommy all the time. Good thing, that she still takes a morning-nap and lets me clean up the house just a bit. But she is very sweet and has lots of kisses for everyone and lets herself be kissed, which is especially enjoyed by Daddy because Lorena has to be pleaded with to get some kisses.
Anyway, on her birthday, Nerea with fascinated with all the faces around her singing to her and she was just looking around. She´s soooo cute!!
